Ben Francisco, part of the two-for-four deal you might have heard about, starts in center field when the Phils open a four-game series against the Giants. First pitch is ... 10:15 ET?
Seriously dudes, the extra minutes make all the difference in being able to stay conscious for this. Thanks a lot. In other news, Cliff Lee will start tomorrow's game, which will be on normal rest, contrary to the misinformation I fed you in the previous post. Actually, try to forget the previous post ever happened, along with the very first season of Beerleaguer. Thx. In all seriousness, this is a rather big litmus test for the Phillies against one of only a handful of clubs remaining on the schedule that actually scare you. This is big opportunity to see how the new-look Phillies stack up.
